1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    Jersey

    I was wondering what would be a good jersey to buy while I ride trails and what not. Lately I have been using normal t-shirts, but they dont seem to cut it anymore. I have been looking at a few Fox ones. Could anyone recommend something good.

    Anything that's "dry-wick" - basically a polyster blend that "wicks" moisture away from your body. FOX makes great jerseys...or you could visit a SportsMart, Targert, Wal Mart, etc.. and pick up t-shirt style dry wick shirts for about $10 a pop.

    Wear whatever you're comfortable in

    if you want

    long sleeve, go to any sporting store and get a CCM hockey practice jersey for $15.00 CAD. If you want short sleeves, find an outdoor store that sells wicking T shirts. don't wear cotton, it simply doesn't work.
